BEREC has adopted a BEREC Opinion on Phase II investigation pursuant to Article 7 of Directive 2002/21/EC as amended by Directive 2009/140/EC on 29 December 2014.

On 28 November 2014 the European Commission informed the French National Regulatory Authority ARCEP and BEREC about its serious doubts considering that a draft measure concerning Wholesale SMS termination on individual mobile networks in France would create a barrier to the internal market.

Following its role and rules  BEREC adopted its opinion, stating that the expressed serious doubts by the European Commission are partially justified. More specific information about the serious doubts of the European Commission and BEREC’s assessment can be found here.
